difficult job in washington now because he's got a substantial number of tea party supporters in his caucus who are not going to be inclined to go along with tax increases, but the president and harry reid are going to be pushing what they've been pushing throughout this election which is tax increases on high earners. >> this election was a lot about taxes and tax policy. john boehner has said we retained the house we're not going to raise taxes. there will be a lot of wrapping lynn. president obama because he won a second term has the leverage advantage. if nothing is done all the taxes from the bush tax rates will go back to pre that 2001 law. john boehner is going to have to lead his conference. in the last congress basically they were leading him. i think he needs to grab their trust and say, you've got to trust me, because when i make a deal i need you behind whatever he strikes. but that's going to be so hard because a lot of these tea party republicans are like we have to fight, we can't strike a deal, this is the worst time to strike a deal. john boehner, you know, his job unbeliev

[ cheers and applause ] and together we're going to put the nation back on track to a balanced budget and to reform our tax code and to finally reaffirm our commitment to financial responsibility. [ cheers and applause ] now, you know if the president were to be reelected, he would continue his war on coal and oil and natural gas. he'd send billions more dollars to his favorite friends in the solar and wind world and all of this means higher gasoline prices and fewer jobs. today gasoline costs twice what it did when president obama took office. when i'm elected, we're going to change course on energy entirely. i know just how much energy means t
. in the suburbs of washington. fairfax county and next door in prince william county. in 2008 in the counties president obama did well against mccain. 61% to 389%. in fairfax. prince william, louden, 54-vi. the president will need to do well there. he has to do well there to run up the vote total and make up for romney strength in south and west of virginia. watching virginia very closely when the polls close. >> well done. >> a state that is critical is virginia. i went for president obama in 2008, but romney needs it. mike emanuel live in richmond. good evening. >> election officials describe turn-out as robust and ahead of 2008 levels. experts predicting the record turn-out in the range of 4 million voters. with long lines across virginia that could be achieved. republican vice presidential nominee paul ryan made one final visit to virginia. the richmond area this afternoon. just hours before the polls close at 7:00 p.m. ryan told campaign staff and volunteers this is are a great effort. they should keep it up. wake up tomorrow morning knowing they did evening they could in virginia. for r
washington, next "fox news sunday." ecision day. >> special coverage starts right now on america's election ahead quarters. good evening and welcome to a special edition of america's election headquarters, i'm bret baier. >> i'm megyn kelly, we are less than 48 hours away from the first poll closings that will determine who the next president of the united states will be. the two candidates are crisscrossing the nation hoping to lock in support in key states and this race could not get any tighter. the real clear politics average, that's an average of 11 national polls, has president obama leading by just 1/2 a point over governor romney. over the next hour we will have analysis from chris wallace and brit hume, both have covered elections for decades. >> well, we will also check in with charles krauthammer on the trajectory of the race in the final days, but we begin with fox team coverage. steve brown is in the key swing state of o-o as is chief white house correspondent ed henry travelling with the president on his four states tour and chief political correspondent carl camero
by is every single national poll from ras muse ento gallup to george washington university political battle ground poll the fox poll are dead even. usually the person liked the most highest favorable rating wins. that's dead even. independents are dead even. it is one of these whose mott el is right. more seniors vote than young people the romney team wins. the romney message is up beat. the obama message is kind of negative. don't let these bad guys come in office again. >>> with regard to these polls they weren't all in lock step rather in 2008. in an election like this even if it is this tight, ed, you are doing polling out there say you are off by one or two points. as a pollster you might say hey we came close to nailing it. but not this time. if the polls are off by a point or two it could be, i don't want to use the word land slide but it could be a dominating victory for one side or the other. >> this whole election is decided by less than a million votes. obviously in these 6 or 7 states none of them are for sure. they could tip either way which could make one side or the other win
at the washington post national poll. they took a look across the country and found this race tied. 48% each. that does left 4% undecided. i will get to that in just a minute. let's take a look at the real clear politics national average. they take the polls and combine them and take the average. 1/10 percent lead for president obam a. again, you have 4%, or 5% undecided. the question i keep asking, david, is if after four years of an obama administration, people are undecided, might they not be inclined to try the guy who hasn't had the office yet? >> they might. we have seen in past electrics, where undecided voters at this late date, by and large go with the challenger. but the question, too, given how decide divided the country is, are they going to show up? if they don't, who does that hurt? who does that help? it also is interesting because you have this race, by and large, focused on about 10 battleground states, very intensely treally hasn't been a national campaign, given that everybody's been traveling to the same, you know, 8 to 10 states. i think that, you know, could have an eff
: one of the things that people really hope that obama would bring to washington would be a new approach to working across the aisle to being bipartisan and too caring about the other half of the country that did not vote for him. one of the criticisms of him has been that instead of doing that when we got there, he rammed obamacare down the throats of the american people who did not want without a single republican vote in his favor. he changed the rules in the senate to pass it through without a senate vote of 60 in the senate. and focus on health care, which was so divisive. people's health care instead of jobs. were your thoughts on? >> i have been into virginia and north carolina would last for weeks. you know, i don't know what the statistics say, but i will tell you that they have registered over 400,000 new democratic voters in north carolina and they have turned out and registered a record number of voters in virginia. megyn: does anyone recognize you when you knock on the door? >> actually, i would like to say that this show has made me an international celebrity, but it has no
the outcome? >> no. >> the so-called redskins rule already determines the victor. it haze the washington nfl football team wins the final game before the presidential election the party in power retains the white house. if the team loses the challenger comes out on top. since 1940 that rule has proven true with only one exception that was in 2004 when the redskins lost two-days prior. today they lost. is that a bad omen for president obama? we will know tuesday whether the rule holds? >> you can't say it is a rule if it was broken in 2004. it was in place until it was no more. >> the octopus already predicts the race. >> we will have that for you between now and tuesday. >> exciting. it's harry. thank you for joining us for our special sunday night edition of "america's election headquarters." tune in tomorrow 1:00 p.m. for america live and the last day of campaigning ahead of election day. it's the candidate's last chance to secure a victory and get the people to the polls. karl rove and joe trip pee will be giving their predictions of who will be getting the magic number of 270 no tossup s
. steven kopf, washington bureau chief for the "cleveland plain-dealer.". drew, i want to start with you. in this kind of election a two point lead would seem to be monumental. yet the obama campaign is spending a lot of resources, sending a lot of surrogates to new hampshire, the president has been appearing there. why? >> the president has come here three times in the last month. four times if you go back to sent him self. he sent bill clinton twice. michelle has been here, both bidens. they're sending a lot of resources into a tiny state that has four electoral votes. my suspicion they're looking at internal polls showing it maybe a little closer than the public polls show it. jon: that two point lead we talked about from "politico" you think the obama campaign sees it smaller than that? >> that is my suspicion. why else would you have the president of the united states spend so much time, four visits to a state with four electoral votes? the other indication this is how close they believe the national election will really be. that the president has to come to little new hampshire fou
it is up for grabs. we have a lot of confusing information out. abc "washington post" has a 3-point lead for obama but a six more point democrats sampled than republicans. cnn had a tie and an 11-point more democrat. it was a 7-point more democrat than republican in 2008, cnn had it at 11 points and had it at a tie. we have too many polls, the precision they don't have, i'm a numbers guy. i like to see the votes. we know that president obama's margin has declined. if you take a look at the states, the battleground states where there's partisan registration, so you can actually track who is it who is voting early or applying for an absentee ballot. the democrats had a 11-point margin four juror four years ago, it's 5.5 today. 340,000 democrats voted early than republicans four years ago. they this year about 105 more democrats have turned out than republicans, which points to a very, very, very tight night. jon: as you well know these elections are won in the middle, democrats largely vote for their candidates, republicans largely vote for their candidate, and it's the independent voter t
was right the other day when he said he can't change washington from the inside. only from the outside. we're going to give him that chance. [cheers and applause] that's his way. my way is quite different. when i'm elected i will work with republicans and democrats in congress. i'm going to meet regularly with leaders in both parties. and i'm going to endeavor to find good men, good women on both sides of the aisle that care more about the country than they do about politics and they're there and we can make that happen. [cheering] now there is no question but you know that regardless of what he says, if the president gets reelected he will con continue his war on coal and oil and natural gas. i have a very different path. when i'm elected we'll change occurs on energy, to build jobs, to help put the price at the pump, we'll achieve north american energy independence in eight years. [cheers and applause] if the president were to be reelected, i would be convinced he would continue to crush small business with his plan to raise taxes on them, to force employees to join unions whether they w
that most of the media is located in new york city and washington and you get a more liberal members of the press corps as a result of where they are ran they live. that's undeniable. i will say that george bush went to war with a very complacent media saying there were weapons of mass destruction. nobody really looked into it too much except for a few left-leaning newspapers. soy wouldn't say the media has done a good job in either case of get together bottom of what voters need them to get to the bottom of. megyn: there is a question of whether we reached a new level where the media loves a president. there have been many segments we have had when we talk about if mitt romney is running against the forth estate in addition to barack obama. >> there is a fundamental head wind against republicans. some of my friends on the right think there is an open conspiracy among the mainstream media to stick it to republicans wherever they can. i agree the mainstream media has given politicians a hard time. they are like werewolves, they prefer to meade on republicans but they must feed on some
